** spoiler alert ** Did anyone feel like Tolstoy got tired of writing and just stopped? He spent loads of time on Anna and Vronsky dithering, and even more pages pondering the plight of the Russian peasant, but suddenly turned to conciseness in the end. There is little lead-in to the announcement in the last sentence that Anna and Vronsky ran away. Minimal explanation as to why they drastically changed course from their previous dithering.

Other than the sparseness of the end, I enjoyed the book. I became annoyed with Anna and Vronsky, but no real surprise there.
